The Shoes in the Corner

I spent some time in my closet; it needed some refining. I was fishing around in the back corner, and much to my surprise, I found my summer shoes! The dear summer shoes that I thought I had lost, the ones that I thought may have ended up at the thrift store. Yup, I found them, in my closet, safe and sound.  I will admit, that there was a small element of disappointment deep within my heart. If I had not found my summer shoes, then I could have begun to collect several new pair, or new to me, at least. But, now that I have found the lost summer shoes, I probably will not gather as large of a collection! I piled them in the middle of the closet, so now I won't loose them again. Soon, it will be warm enough to replace the winter boots and shoes with the summer shoes.
I was curious this morning what the Bible said about shoes, so I looked it up. In 1 Timothy 6:8 I read this:

If we have bread on the table and shoes on our feet, that's enough. (Message)

Once again, I have been blessed with many shoes to put on my feet, and I am thankful. The God of grace is showing me and gifting me in lovely ways. Say That Again, Jesus, You have put shoes on my feet, now direct my path.
